Working with Myles was a highlight for the students at All Things Dance. The students found Myles to be such an inspiration and they were amazed at the amount of knowledge and practical skills they received in the workshops. Myles’ ability to work across different age groups made the sessions relatable and worthwhile for all students. We are very grateful that Myles came to visit and work with the students in Geraldton. We will definitely look forward to having more training with him in the future.

To tell a Story and tell it with belief is the essence of what an actor strives to do in their work. Myles Pollard instils in our students the belief in themselves and their art form, allowing them access into the world of dramatic performance while overlaying those tools in every facet of their creative output. Whether it be dancing, singing or acting, Myles demonstrates the art of story telling in all these aspects of performance and has helped our full-time students at Urban Dance access their truth in the delivery of a story in any art form. A talented and rare individual, Myles bridges the world of teacher and actor in a way very few can. To be able to teach and demonstrate to our students while igniting the desire within them to succeed, Myles is a loved and treasured member of the UDC faculty who inspires the creative in us all.

The course (Auditioning workshop) is great! Myles totally transformed my understanding of Shakespeare and he transformed my second piece to a place of complete authenticity. I walked out totally inspired. Ultimately his course helped me get accepted into The American Academy of Dramatic Arts.

I have recently attended the 4-day Intensive Workshop and I am eager to complete the Master Class at the end of this year. I entered shy, insecure and terrified but Myles has an ability to make you completely forget about your insecurities. By the second day I was still shy, but I felt more comfortable and was excited to start.  Over the four days I grew more confident in my abilities and learnt several valuable mindsets and tools that will not only help me with my acting but also in my everyday life.
Thank you Myles for this amazing experience and for finally opening that door of confidence in me. You have given me the belief in myself that my dream of becoming an actor can really become a reality.

I’ve worked with Myles a few times now. I have to say the level of commitment and guidance he brings to actors is unmatchable and one of the best I’ve seen. His courses, after I have taken them, I am left feeling that something amazing has taken place and doors are starting to open in every part of acting from knowledge to action, to finally getting your head around some troubles before that you thought you couldn’t tackle and realising your best self as an actor. After being a part of Myles’s teaching, I have come to realise they are truly a necessity into breaking through to your artistic self and allowing yourself to just get up there, to play and to realise truly what it means to be an actor.
